PETALING JAYA: Malaysia is not affected by Belgium’s decision to ban the use of palm oil as a biofuel in the country starting next year, said Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali.(pic)
He said this is because the country’s palm oil market is still quite large and that there are many other countries importing Malaysian palm oil; noting that the government is also actively marketing the products in markets such as Africa and the Middle East.
Afghanistan has also asked us to increase oil palm exports to the country, so we are confident that our oil palm market will not be affected. ─ Bernama
